Converse Renew Canvas introduces a new kind of upper material for the upper portion of the footwear brand's iconic footwear designs that are made entirely of recycled polyester from used plastic bottles.
Converse Renew represents an ongoing commitment from the brand to create innovative and sustainable products. As part of this goal of producing even more sustainable styles, Converse will be launching Converse Renew Denim later in summer 2019, followed by Converse Renew Cotton in spring 2020. Thanks to the classic look of Converse's shoes, which consist of a rubber sole and a canvas upper component, this creates even more room for experimentation with different eco-friendly materials, proving that the brand can virtually use any material to recreate its iconic sneaker design.
Rather than using virgin materials, many apparel, footwear and accessory brands are showing how versatile recycled materials can be.
